La Salle County Nursing Home Evacuated

Posted by wlpo on April 18, 2013

The Illinois River is rising quickly and evacuation of the La Salle County Nursing Home is underway.

La Salle County Chairman Jerry Hicks says Nursing Home Director Chris Csernus is working to the phones to find places for people in the nursing home to stay. Hicks says they’ve also reached out to hospitals to see if they may be able to accommodate some from the nursing home.  There are over 60 residents in the nursing home.

Hicks says the evacuation can only go as fast as there are paramedics available to transfer people from the nursing home.
